Muscat’s shifting position in EU family photos

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The placing of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat in the family photo taken during the European Council of December 12 and 13, 2019 has raised a controversy on Facebook.

Newsbook is posting this photo comparing it with other family photos taken during previous meetings of the European Council.

Newsbook.com.mt was reliably informed that several leaders of EU member states were feeling uncomfortable at the presence of Prime Minister Muscat given the evidence being given in Court about the connections of high officials at the Office of the Prime Minister, a business man accused of being the mastermind of the murder of Daphne Caruana Galiza and the middleman who organised the same murder.

Thursday EU Parliament President Charles Maria Sassoli sent to Charles Michel the President of the European Council a letter with a report asking for action about Malta.  The report was written by Juan Aguilar and Sophie In ‘t Velt following the mission of the EU Parliament to Malta.

In a second letter, the European Parliament calls on EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to initiate investigations into Malta in the context of proceedings under the rule of law. On Tuesday next week, the European Parliament in Strasbourg will debate a resolution on the situation in Malta. The resolution will be voted on Wednesday next week.
